  1. Thanks! So my pre-reqs are expiring in some of the schools I am looking at. It looks like I might have to retake them. But do you know if my pre-reqs. expired are they still part of my cGPA? Or will they still be part of it and if I do a retake, they see it as a separate class?
  2. Hi all, I am thinking of a career transition change for myself. I have been working in the corporate healthcare world for 4-years (doing government and consulting work) and I want to do a career transition and be on the field and perhaps go through the PA school. Before I do that, I will like to take a year to prepare and make sure I am able to put myself as competitive as possible. Prior going to a 4-year university, I went to community college because I had some person issues that were going on. I done a lot of the intro classes in the bio. track and GPA was 3.59. My undergraduate major was Biology at Cornell University, but overall GPA was 2.65. My graduate degree major was a MPH in Health Policy at St. Louis University, with an overall GPA of 3.98. My science GPA is on the low side. But since I have already taken the majority of the prerequisites courses, what will the best option for me? I have been out of undergraduate for about 7 years. Should I start a post-bac program for career changers or for academic record enhancers (I can take advance science classes to help boost the science GPA)? Can I do them at a community college? Or should I apply to an university? I would appreciate your input on this as I would love to apply to the program next year.
